Fishing Report 1/27/18

We had a nice start to the day today, but the ocean got cranky as the day progressed. Fishing was not good just a handful of nice Ling, big Perch, some eels and a few short Cod and Tog. Chulo went home a happy man after hitting the $440 boat pool with a Big Ling. We will schedule our next trips based on nice weather around the weekends, so as of now there are no trips scheduled. Check back here or Facebook for updates. Thanks to all the guys who came out with us today !

Blackfishing Every Morning, Striped Bass Fri, Sat, Sun Night

We are Blackfishing on the 7am morning trips.  The Blackfish have been biting a little better lately last week fishing was slow. We missed a few trips due to the strong winds earlier this week.  As usual with Blackfishing the more experienced anglers catch more fish.  We are Fishing for Striped Bass with live eels for bait on the 7pm night trips Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.  There were still some Stripers around last weekend.
